The Duke of Edinburgh marked Anzac Day earlier this morning.

Anzac Day is the commemoration of Australia and New Zealand’s war dead. The dawn service was held in Hyde Park Corner in London, where there are war memorials for both.

Prince Edward placed a wreath of red poppies and white flowers as military personnel watched on. He will also place a wreath at the Cenotaph later today and attend a wreath-laying ceremony in the crypt at St Paul’s Cathedral.

Anzac Day falls on 25 April as this marks the start of the Gallipoli landings during the First World War.
